This is definitely a prerequisite for actually seeing a bigfoot, and thus being in a position to capture evidence. I was just mentioning in another
thread how small the chances are of finding bigfoot by utilizing the methods of the show "Finding Bigfoot," which unfortunately is what the majority
of researchers seem to do as well. If you look at the thousands of available reports, it becomes apparent that most sightings come not from people out
looking for bigfoot, but from random people who have never given the idea of bigfoot a second thought. If they ever gave it a first thought, lol. They
were highly indifferent is what I'm saying.
This is logical considering the small percentage of the population out looking for bigfoot, which translates into very low odds based on numbers
alone. But when you consider the hundreds of millions of people in the United States who live in states with a bigfoot population, it is obvious that
the chances of one of these people having a sighting is much greater, simply because there are more of them. That is why sightings seem to come from
random people, people with varying backgrounds, differing social status, etc...
The majority of us in the bigfoot community have long ago concluded that there are certain necessary prerequisites for finding bigfoot, of course
throwing sheer chance/luck aside. For instance, my sighting was nothing but sheer luck. I believe the animal was checking us out as we walked deeper
into the woods, and as I walked in a particular direction, I caught him from kind of the side and back as he was entering a treeline, having crossed a
small open field to get there. My timing was quite lucky, since if I made it to that spot 10 or so seconds later, I wouldn't have seen anything.
Anyway, one of the requirements for finding bigfoot when that is one's goal is to spend as much consistent time in their environment as possible. It
is quite easy to determine what particular forests bigfoot live in by reading sighting reports, although some forests are bigger than others, and when
you get into the PNW everything seems to kind of run together, because there is so much forested land. I think most people would be surprised at the
amount of forested land is in the US, much of unexplored, or maybe only had someone walk through it once, years and years ago. Think of this....There
are millions of square miles of national forests alone. There is a staggering 640 acres to a square mile. Doing the math, that is a whole lot of
acreage for bigfoot to live in. And that is not even considering the wilds of Canada, which is basically an extension of US forestland in the PNW.
Anyway, spending as much time there as possible is key, as you want to be there if a bigfoot comes through. If you only spend a few hours a day in a
certain location, then a bigfoot could come through when you aren't there. Attempting to cover as much ground as possible, thinking that if a bigfoot
wasn't at a point A, maybe it will be at point B, is not a good strategy. The animals will have a much better chance to hear you coming, and leave
the area. But if you get up high in a tree, completely concealed, and you've chosen your spot well, and you remain there for 6 months...if a bigfoot
comes through, you will either see it or get it on film.
You could put cameras up to accomplish the same thing, but here is the deal with trail cameras and why they rarely capture a bigfoot. Usually it is
quite easy to see a box strapped to a tree. It only takes limited intelligence to realize that such a thing is not natural to the environment. That is
bigfoot's house, and he will know what is supposed to be, and what is not supposed to be, in that environment. So if it sees something like that, I
think it will associate it with humans, or at the very least associate with something that is unnatural, and thus avoid it altogether. And for the
camera to capture the bigfoot in the first place, it will have to be facing the right direction. There are three other directions of approach that
would allow the animal to see the camera before the camera captures it.
There is also the possibility that sasquatch have a good sense of smell, and can actually smell that a human has been in the area, or smell human
residue from the camera itself. There are multiple eyewitness reports of sasquatch sticking its nose in the air and sniffing, like a dog would, which
could indicate that they rely heavily on their sense of smell. Obviously an animal of that nature will use every single sense it has to its advantage,
and in fact, all of its senses will likely be honed much more than those of a human. This is because it relies on all its senses for survival, and
thus they are always sharp. Humans do not need to rely so heavily on their senses for survival all the time, so it may be hard for some to understand
their importance to such an animal.
So another prerequisite is to de-scent everything. And I mean everything. And another thing about cameras. If the animals are skittish of them, yet
they get captured on film because the camera saw them before they saw the camera, or since they don't know what it is they decided to check it out,
here are some things that could, and have, happened in the past. You get a single picture of something approaching, but you cannot really make out the
details, either due to motion blur, distance, or a crappy camera. Then you get a picture of just hair, or a blob, because whatever it is has gotten
right on top of the camera. There are quite a few examples of this, where one just sees shaggy hair, in one instance it looked like it was hanging off
of a forearm, but suffice it to say that these images are not "proof" of bigfoot.
So that is another reason a live person must be there. Skeptics are always claiming there is no evidence for bigfoot, and how they want to see a
"clear" image, yada yada. Yet there are hundreds of examples of bigfoot on film or in a picture, yet every single one of them is dismissed as being
a hoax. So what skeptics should say is this..."Don't bother capturing visual evidence, because no matter what you get, it will not be enough." In
fact, it is probably pointless to attempt to capture such evidence, if your intention is to prove the existence of these animals to the world.
And something we see among the bigfoot community is exactly that attitude. These people know better than most just what the reactions of the public
are going to be, and because of that, they keep their evidence to themselves. They have proven the existence of these animals to themselves, and that
is what they are content with. And I don't blame them really, because I too have seen the reactions of skeptics and non-believers, even when you
present really good visual evidence. That is really all the majority of people can do. They aren't going to just stumble upon a bigfoot they can
capture, and the majority of people are not in a position to shoot one, and if they were, they likely wouldn't pull the trigger. I've seen one, and
it is hard to imagine shooting it, simply because it is so humanlike. You aren't thinking of it as an animal similar to all the other animals in the
forest. Even if you think you would see it that way, once you see one in person, I bet you change your mind.
And finding a dead bigfoot is just as hard as finding a dead bear. It just doesn't happen very often. In fact, the majority of people don't even see
live bears in the wilderness, and the bear population is multiple times that of the sasquatch population, or that is a logical conclusion at least.
Anyway, I could go on talking about all the points relating to bigfoot for hours and hours. There are better arguments and examples I could use in
some instances, and I would have liked to elaborate on many of the claims I made in this post, but it is taxing and hard to do. But honestly I have
spent a lot of time thinking about sasquatch and how they survive, and why things have worked out the way that they have, and I can assure you that
every single claim I've made has had much thought put into it. Although sometimes a conclusion is hard to reach, and it comes down to guessing, but
sometimes this isn't the case, because there are only so many possibilities, and only so many of those that make much sense.
